It took me 5 years to get through HS because I was an emotional mess. I could not consentrate and did not care about anything...especially school work.
Same here, except that I spent 5 years in high school and ended up with a GED. I don't think I could've properly been called an emotional "mess", nor could I probably use the excuse that I couldn't concentrate. But I DID not care about anything, especially school work. Homework, particularly. It was a habit I developed, and there's a reason I developed it, but that's kind of a longer story.
